Mature discussion around migration could lead to happier society


At the end of the day , every society only has so much resources that they can afford to maintain at any given time .

Every society only has so many Houses at any given time , so many School Places at any given time , so many Hospital Beds at any given time .

While its true more Houses can be built, more Hospital Beds opened and more Schools built , this takes both Time , Money and Planning.

For example , A House cannot be built overnight , it takes a few months to build a House . It also takes money .

Roughly 9,000 to 10,000 Foreign Nationals arrive in Ireland every Month according to PPS number statistics [before covid] .

Even if 9,000 Houses magically fell from the sky overnight , the following month , another 9,000 houses would be needed to accommodate those arriving in that month in addition to the 61,880 houses needed for people waiting on Social Housing , over a quarter of whom have been waiting longer than 7 years for a house .

We need to find a balance between whats reasonable and whats unreasonable . Its very easy to say everyone welcome without thinking through the consequences.
 
Many families in Ireland are struggling to pay for their own House and Bills and put Food on the table . Is it their responsibility to pay for houses for everyone who wants to come live here and at the expense of their own children . 

Many young couples are struggling to find a home , settle down and start a family , the more pressure thats put on limited resources , the more misery for everyone including migrants already living here who are also struggling to find a home .
 

Its neither racist , far right or fascist to have a mature conversation on the issue of migration , such a conversation could solve a lot of issues and result in an improved society where everyone is a lot happier .

we need to have a robust system where people coming here show they can pay their own way , pay their own bills , pay for their own house . Its also important to ensure the jobs they are coming to do cannot be filled by someone already living here who is unemployed and struggling to find employment . This is the system we need . a sensible system
